    I Never Could

    I couldn't do it when I was in my "prime" - and I can't do it now. After a certain hour, my system says "bedtime" and I don't want to ignore something that might find me sleeping on my laptop. I am up early - usually 5:3O or 6:OO the latest - unless I'm not well. This time of...

    May Be Too Old-but Doesn't Stop Them

    The only difference between when I was young til now, is the recovery time.  I used to be able to do all nighters & still feel pretty good the next day. Then go right back to a regular schedule. Now, if I  do an all nighter, the next day I may be okay for...

    All Nighters?

    I am 42. I am wayyy too old. So I don't know how my neighbors, people I know...anyone who is physically older can pull them. More power to you.

    Not S E X

    I'm not talking about all nighters as in sex I'm talking about being here on EP all night and then working all day and again and again and again. I'm tired! I need sleep so bad... just one whole day of sleep would work for me. They say you can't catch up... watch me!

    I Love Sleep

    Also I really haven't had a reason to pull an all nighter. Though there have been times when I've started a book that I couldn't put down until I finished it and found out it was 6am... that following day I'm either sleeping or in a daze.
